Thing is, I still have a long way to go with my fitness and am still motivated to improve so not actually sure how this works. If I'm just out a lot riding hard and mimicking the rest periods from the training plan, would I still get fitter, generally?
Do you guys find you get fitter over the spring/summer period due to upping your miles, or should you still follow some sort of structure (i.e. do specific interval, FTP, VO2 work)?
Not a problem for me if I need to keep being specific - I enjoy a workout ride as much as bombing around. As long as I'm on the bike I'm happy
Still, not sure how to go about it. I don't want to come out of summer finding I just increased my endurance and everything else is pants
A good plan is structured to hit different energy systems on different days and to provide sufficient recovery to allow your body to compensate.
For any number of reasons (discipline, lack of free time) I prefer to be following a plan.
